OMG TONIGHT’S EPISODE IM CRYING.
All this NaLu and Gruvia is going to kill me.
And the Sting and Lector ordeal was just too much to bear like that was so beautiful and sad and did I mention beautiful.
And then the ending song when (future) Lucy looks down at her hand and sees that it’s still there AND THAT LITTLE TEARDROP KILLED ME and then her face when she sees Natsu and Happy UGH.
Such a good episode.
I can’t handle the choppy motion, the lack of expressions, and recycled cuts.
The unison raid doesn’t look animated, but more like a poorly executed stop-motion that took cuts from the manga and moved the pictures left and right. The fights were so static and failed to create the impact of the glorious victory achieved after episodes of laborious battle.
Despite the chubby faces and unaesthetic art, the last animation team did better in bringing out the movement of the characters during fights.
Perhaps we do complain too much about the anime- but at least for Gloria, I think I have the right to be a little disappointed.
